"self you can grow a beard. People will now know how mature and manly you are. Congratulations on growing this fine facial hair."
This is really quite scary for the girlfriends and wives out there. We see our men not shave for a couple days/weeks (or in Brandon's case a day) and a little bit of worry piques in our minds.
"he wouldn't be growing a beard, right? It's just a (few) day(s). He got busy. He knows how dirty beards typically look on men...right?"
